At Applique by the Bay, I took a class with Emily Martin and learned about applique on Pelon. She taught us the back basing technique that I had never done. After trying it, I found that even though it was slow going, I really liked working that way. The cardinal was the first thing I tried and I was pleased with the results. After that, I started the rose. I have put that block aside to work on gifts for Ellen's baby shower. I'll be showing those gifts after April 7th, the date of the shower.
